Battle.net disabled for Reign of Chaos
Dev Comment: We’ve been encountering non-trivial issues connecting players over Battle.net as we unify the game client - a prime example being disconnects caused by erroneous matches between Chaos and Throne. Custom maps created with RoC data are still playable, this affects melee only. A major benefit to this change is players who owned Reign of Chaos only now have The Frozen Throne.
Blizzard, I’m a fan of yours, I love your games. I’ve played all your PC games except for Hearthstone but from all of them, Reign of Chaos has been the one I’ve played the most. It’s ridiculous how, after so many years you just decide to shut it down.
RoC has been surviving from hackers, lack of support, spam bots and so many other things for so many years that it’s heartbreaking you decide this now.
Two websites have been supporting this scene for years, both of them sponsorizing great tournaments where even players from TFT came by from time to time.
We have been mantaining this all with our time, our money and our joy.
Now you removed it from us.
Take back your decision. There is still time. Even tho we’ve probably lost thousands of players already because of your lack of communication after shutting it down when the server maintenance.
Don’t do this shi__t.
